Right then! The first game was a thriller, but this one not so much. South Africa have comprehensively outplayed Pakistan today and they have leveled the series. The series is nicely set up and the third match would be very crucial. The next T20I is on 14th April, 14:30 Local (12:30 GMT). Do join us then for the coverage. Till then, goodbye, take care and stay safe!
George Linde, Man of the Match, says it is never easy to bowl in the Powerplay, they did have a couple of game plans going into the game and it worked for them. States they had a game plan to keep the field in and they could have a wicket. Adds he did not bowl that well previously but he started well and just wanted to keep the momentum going. Reckons the wicket was okay to bat on. Ends by saying, Markram played an unbelievable knock from them and he feels it was a good wicket and it was a good game overall.
Heinrich Klaasen, the skipper of South Africa, says he is very pleased with how things went and that is why he has a smile on his face. Adds Magala did not start off that well but came back strongly and he is a quality player. Adds the wicket is good to bat on and he feels his bowlers bowled really well and they wanted to play aggressive cricket but smart cricket and the balance was right. Adds they played cow boy cricket in Pakistan where everybody just swung and that is not what they wanted and they wanted to play a lot smarter. Ends by saying the young players are quality players and it is all about execution.
Babar Azam, the skipper of Pakistan, says that their batting collapsed and they lost early wickets which didn't help their cause. Gives full credit to the South African bowlers for doing well with the ball. Admits that their batters were a bit too aggressive and they couldn't get any partnerships going and therefore couldn't finish strongly. Says that the players weren't complacent and that he has full confidence in his team that they can bounce back.
The Pakistan bowling wasn't that bad but they just did not have enough. They needed early wickets but they did not get many. Still though, Qadir was impressive but he did not get a lot of support from the other end.
A thumping win then for South Africa! To be very honest, it was their bowlers who set it up for them after restricting Pakistan to a low score. The South African openers got them off to a very good start. Markram then continued his good form and scored a half ton. There was a period where they did lose a couple of wickets quickly but to no avail as Linde and Klaasen ensured they finish the game.
